Sociopaths Are Not "made".I have four children - two of them are sociopaths. These two as infants were completely unlike the other two - they screamed incessantly and could not be helped. they appeared to have no conscience. I would stick up for them against their teachers, our neighbours, the police but I can see now I was duped. I was just too naive to believe they were capable of what they were accused.
I nursed them until they were 8 months old. I read out loud to them until they were 8. we went for nature walks, I hired a tutor for my eldest. there was trip after trip to psychologists TRYING to find out how to fix them...and then there was the police, the dates at court, the weeks that I cried because they were in jail or some group home.
They have stolen and broken every valuable thing I ever owned. They have cost me every rent deposit from their destroying our apartments while I was at work. the stress became unbearable while I was at work fearing what they were doing at home and the police came to my place of employment twice one summer so I kept having to switch jobs. I cherished the younger one even though he was more destructive and cruel because e was honest. he knew that was why I could stand him. The older kid would lie as soon as look at you and for no reason at all. I would calmly lecture and ask them "why?" I showered them with affection and the consequences for their actions were severe but it never appeared to matter to them.
I gave them life and they have ruined mine.
